"Night in the Desert," another wool tapestry in 5 parts by the artist, is shown below. These panels were hung so that they could be drawn apart to shade the windows.  Hand-crafted in Tunisia, the wall-hanging depicts the life of the desert which has been a defining element of Arab culture.  Click here for a closer look at these panels drawn together.

For more about the tapestries, visit the Artisan Crafts section of this site after you've completed your tour.
